Form Block


WordPress offers several (contact) form plugins, but most of them are not up-to-date anymore when it comes to creating forms. Form Block tackles this problem by utilizing the block editor’s power. It enables you to create a form effortlessly within the block editor itself, which makes the process of creating a form much more enjoyable and similar to creating other types of blocks. This innovative approach to form creation ensures that Form Block stands out from other WordPress form plugins.

Note: This plugins requires the PHP extension „Document Object Model“ (php-dom).


  • Fully support of the block editor
  • Built with accessibility in mind
  • Create forms with an unlimited number of fields
  • Select from a wide variety of field types
  • Use a predefined form or start from scratch
  • Integrated honeypot for spam protection
  • Integrated knowledge base for field types
  • Client-side and server-side validation

  2. Select a predefined form or start from scratch.

Just tried out this simple Form Block plugin and it’s awesome – every block in the editor should be like this. Making a contact form is super easy. You just install it, add the block in the editor, pick the pre-made contact form, and you’re done. Editing the fields is a breeze, and it even includes a GDPR checkbox automatically. It works right away, sending the info to the WP admin email without any extra setup. The free version is perfect for beginners.

Ich habe mir das Form Block-Plugin von Epiphyt mal näher angeschaut und finde es wirklich klasse. Das Erstellen eines einfachen Kontaktformulars ist mit dem Plugin sehr einfach: Nach der Installation gibt’s einen neuen Block namens Form Block. Form Block im Block-Editor einfügen, das vordefinierte Kontaktformular auswählen, und schon sind die wichtigsten Felder im Block-Editor vorhanden. Die Formularfelder können im Block-Editor leicht bearbeitet werden. Eine DSGVO-Checkbox ist beim Kontaktformular automatisch mit drin. Den Text man bei Bedarf im Editor anpassen. Das Formular funktioniert sofort nach dem Einfügen und schickt die Formulardaten per Mail an den WP-Admin. Weitere Konfiguration ist nicht nötig. Die kostenlose Version ist für mich momentan das ideale Kontaktformular-Plugin für WordPress-Einsteiger und ich setze es in der Pro-Version selbst inzwischen auf vielen meiner Websites ein.
